Philadelphia Real Ale Invitational

The Sixth Annual Philadelphia Real Ale Invitational is returning to Yards Brewing Company for the fifth consecutive year. More than 20 of the nation’s finest cask ale producers will be offering guests a variety of unique flavors (with perhaps a wee bit of help from across the pond). Cask ale — unfiltered and unpasteurized beer that is conditioned (including secondary fermentation) and served from a cask without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure — has a deeply rooted tradition in the Philadelphia beer scene and it’s only natural that the brewery that resurrected this style of beer hosts its flagship event.

The Philadelphia Real Ale Invitational will feature approximately 27 different cask conditioned beers and breweries, and more may be added between now and March 24th. Beer will not be the only benefit. Food will be provided, live music supplied, and all attendees will receive a commemorative mug. Additionally, the entire brewery space will be open to guests, allowing them to explore Philadelphia’s most sustainable brewery from the Tasting Room to the bottling line.

VIP and General Admission tickets are available for $65 and $50 respectively. The event has sold out every year since its inception, and tickets can be difficult to obtain on the day of the event. VIP tickets are very limited and allow attendees to arrive an hour early for a private tour of the brewery with brew master and founder, Tom Kehoe. VIPs will also be able to sample something special from Yards Brewing Company that doesn’t see the outside of the brewery very often.

*Tickets will also be available for a flat fee at the brewery after Feb. 24th with no additional fees

*VIP session begins at 12pm

*Regular attendance at 1pm

*All guests must be 21 and older and provide a valid ID.

*Please print out ticket and bring with you for access!
